Choral Concert with host Peter Togni, April 17, 2011 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NL) on CBC Radio 2

Choral Concert celebrates spring with a month of Bach – week #3

Johann Sebastian Bach is considered by many to be the greatest composer of all time in the western classical music tradition. So in honour of his incredible output the month of April is all Bach on Choral Concert.

Next Sunday Peter Togni will continue the Choral Concert tradition of bringing you a world class performance of J.S. Bach’s great B Minor Mass. This year’s edition will feature the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chorus.

However, this week we will bring you the equally great St John Passion. In Christianity, the passion story, or the story of Christ’s crucifixion, is commemorated on the Sunday before Easter as “Palm Sunday”.

You’ll hear a truly stunning performance of  Bach’s St John Passion from Montreal - with ensemble Arion and Les Voix Baroque led by Alexander Weimann.
